Last night we had a regional meeting with some amazing Chiropractors and their amazing Chiropractic Assistants. It was a great meeting. We focused on the importance of goals, but how goals don’t “drive” us, it’s the purpose behind the goals, the WHY that truly drives. I was honored to speak at the event on the subject and even more honored to be a part of such a special group of people. We don’t get together to discuss billing, or insurance, or xrays or etc. We get together to see how we can serve others better. Our missions “jive” in that we just want to help as many people as we can, and we get together to help each other along that path!
So, lately the dream of a new fancy car has bitten me. I already have a pretty dang cool car, and at first I was feeling guilty. But I also am very grateful for dreams of all kinds (dreams of things to own, dreams of experiences to have, dreams of time spent with family and friends). Dreams can help drive us as long as we don’t attach too much meaning to them. My purpose is bigger than any dream, and dreams/goals are just markers along the way. I am grateful for dreams 🙂
I am also grateful for living in reality. I am grateful that my reality is pretty much a dream :). I am so thankful for my family, my friends, my career, the people’s lives I get to help, the people who help me, the beautiful state I live in, and the interaction I get to have with amazing people on a day to day basis. I am grateful for my reality.
I am grateful for life between reality and between dreams. Basically, I am just TRULY GRATEFUL for my life ;)!
I love the exercise from MindValley.com: http://www.mindvalley.com/goal-setting-redefined. It is a great (short) way to work on delving deeper into your TRUE goals in life!
